Florida Utility Plans For World’s Largest Solar & Battery Combination

In late March, we had a post about 30-by-30 Florida’s plan. Major US utility Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) has announced the “30-by-30” plan that will see the company install more than 30 million solar panels in Florida by 2030.
According to Energy-Storage news, FPL is planning to build the world’s largest battery energy storage system adjacent to an existing solar power plant, with plans to roll out multiple other storage systems across the state.
With the key proposed battery standing at 409MW capacity, the Florida energy company claims it will be four times larger than the largest battery currently operating worldwide. Furthermore, the system will help reduce fossil fuel usage and thereby accelerate the decommissioning of two neighboring, 1970s-era natural gas power units.
The 409-megawatt battery will be added to an existing 74.5-megawatt solar plant on the west coast of the state near Tampa.
